Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), is a disorder that relates to an extreme level of fatigue. Research is still trying to figure out exactly why this condition occurs in people, as it is not well understood yet. So, if you have a prolonged and intense fatigue, then you should go to your doctor to be diagnosed and examined.


As the condition is not well-understood, it is incredibly hard to diagnose at first. It is most common in middle aged or older women. Diagnosing the condition is hard as it involves having to rule out all other conditions for your extreme fatigue.


While the name of the condition is Chronic FATIGUE Syndrome, there are other symptoms that come with it, including:

  • A loss of memory
  • Trouble keeping focus
  • Not having a full night’s sleep
  • Various joint pains
  • Muscle pain
  • Increase in headaches and migraines
  • Insomnia
  • Sore throat and swollen lymph nodes
